rates are still at rock bottom, and the fed kept up its bond by bu buying program. that policy has been the signature of outgoing federal chairman ben bernanke. but the fed will begin to ease off the easing under new chair janet yellen. under this new edition, we'll examine the green shoots of a recovering economy. >> reporter: the federal reserve wrapped up two days of policy meetings and concluded the u.s. economy is strong enough to start tapering the banks investment program known as quantitative easing. >> we'll be purchasing $75 billion a month reducing purchasing of treasuries by $5 million each. >> reporter: the positive signs are few but strong. unemployment reached a five-year low of 7% in november. the southboun s&p 500, and congress passed a budget for the first time all year. >> the economy is continuing to make progress but it has much farther to travel before conditions with be judged normal. notebly, the economy has been expanding at a moderate pace as we expect growth to pick up helped by monetary policies and waning fiscal drag. >> reporter: all this good economic news
by itself? the answers from all four were no. >> part of it is regulation. the fed reserve is the biggest regulator. you are a huge supporter of janet yellen. what you think she will do as far as big bank regulation that her predecessor did not do? >> one of the tools at her disposal is ordering capital reserve requirements. a second part related to this is the bigger the bank and the more risk it poses to the system, it imposes higher cost on larger financial institutions. so, the fed both independently and through its leadership of all the bank regulators has the capacity to put more balancing constraints on the largest financial institution. balancing the kind of risk -- >> you expect that yellen will be more likely to do that than bernanke was? >> let me ask -- let me put it this way. i asked about it in the hearing. i asked about the importance of the regulatory role. yellen is making commitments in the direction. i think she understands the problem. she knows with the tools are. >> that makes you hopeful? >> i'm more hopeful. i will tell you why. janet yellen is data-driven. look at
: the turmoil is unlikely to deter the fed from trimming its bond buying. ben bernanke wraps up his last meeting at the helm of the central bank, peter barnes from the federal reserve. less than an hour to go before the decision. peter: the consensus seems to be the fed is on cruise control at the meeting today, economists expect a smooth policy handoff between departing fed chairman ben bernanke and his successor janet yellen to take over february 1st, at the end of this two day policy meeting this afternoon and hour from now the fed is expected to announce it will reduce its monthly quantitative easing bond purchases by another $10 billion taking them down to $65 billion a month. the fed said it would start to take credit last policy meeting in september so some analysts say the fed's free ride with easy money is over so investors have to focus once again on market and company fundamentals. >> don't expect that every part of the market is going to go up and that the fed will come to the rescue of the market. maybe the fed does, it is the worst thing the fed could do to come to the rescue of th
. >> the taper continues. the fed is reducing its bond buying from the current $75 billion to 55 billion dollars a month at the final meeting of head chairman ben bernanke. the forward guidance remains the same. much of the language remains the same. there is some news comments with regard to the economy. perhaps the most important section within the statement itself. it says -- and it's a repeat of the last statement -- if income information broadly supports expectation of ongoing improvement in labor market and inflation moving back toward its longer run objective that the meeting will likely reduce the asset fund objective, but asset purchases are not on a preset course. contingentill remain on the committee outlook for the labor market and inflation for the success of the likely efficacy and cost of such purchases. with regard to the economy, some new language here since the last meeting. there are indications of growth and economic activity picking up in recent quarters. labor market indicators showing further improvement. the unemployment rate declined but remains elevated. household spend
and ben bernanke's lasts one as chairman of the fed, the central bank seemed unsafazed i the recent emerging markets. . neither recent emerging market currency turmoil in turkey and elsewhere nor the disappointing december jobs report was enough to get the federal reserve to change its mind about trimming its bond buying program. at ben bernanke's last meeting as chairman of the federal reserve, monetary policymakers were unanimous to reduce purchases by northerly $10 billion to 65 billion per month starting in february. leading analysts were not surprised. >> we couldn't see any real way that they would have stopped the process because of some increased volatility in e.m. and recent selling in the s & p. it just didn't make a lot of sense. >> reporter: the economy appears to be a mixed bag for monetary policymakers. on the positive side, growth in economic activity picked up in recent quarters with both business investment and household spending improving. but there are notes of caution about the mixed job market indicators. and the housing recovery that has slowed somewhat in the
been through. it was inconceivable 10 years ago that anybody would have thought that the fed cut interest rates to zero in 2008, the discussion is will it be zero and tony 15 or 2016? i don't think there is anyone better suited to talk about these policies then john williams, president of the san francisco fed, who did some of the fundamental research that was relied on when we discovered we were going to be faced with a threat as bad as the great depression. >> thank you, great to be here, a wonderful event and i'm honored to be part of it. i was given the task to talk about monetary policy at the federal reserve. specifically around the issue of the zero lower bound. lower bound is basically the constraint that you cannot lower nominal interest rates much below zero. it was an issue that economists and other central-bank economists had studied it -- had d extensively in the 1990's and before the crisis. one thing that spurred the research was the experience of the last decade in japan and the experience of the great epression in the u.s. economists thought hard and wasied how b
manus, let's start things with you. you are watching reaction to the fed. basically -- this is a very self-centered fomc announcement. no bowing of the head to what is going on in markets. i will leave you with a statistic. 55% of global demand is derived from emerging markets. fed the fed -- while the cannot off their cap at the moment, it is proverbial in terms of real demand in about eight months time. it is a fairly moot point. -- $10 billion a month, that is the road. the hurdle to stopping that is pretty high. >> they set policies for their own country, sometimes ignoring the rest of the world. what has been the reaction in emerging markets? >> not as volatile as yesterday but chinese manufacturing numbers, price contraction more than expected. it is not going to actually help sentiment this morning. when it is good, no one believes. when it is bad, people really believe. we will have to see whether there is a read across into commodities. we also have gdp from spain pretty much as expected. gaining 0.3% in the fourth quarter. staying on corporate news, hans, y

there is a new documentary that chronicled the fed during the financial crisis, and this was an intriguing day at the economic forum with ali velshi. i'm david shuster, and this is "real money." >> this is "real money," and you are the most important part of the show. join our live conversation for the next half hour on twitter @aj real money. this has not been a very good day for all of how have money invested in the stock market. for the second day in a row stocks took a big dive, the dow dropped 318 points and the trading loss of 2%. that capped off the weekly decline that they have seen in more than a year. the tech heavy nasdaq fell 2.95%. investors appear to be spooked about what is known as the emerging markets, the rapidly developing countries of brazil, russia and china. those economies are showing signs of slowing down. the market reaction began on thursday following reports of a contraction in china's manufacturing output. that report combined with existing fears around the rising interest rates spread to markets in europe. on friday hong kong's index fell 1.25%. and german's dax fe
as long as the economy remains fragile that we need to continue with the federal reserve. the fed's balance sheet will reach almost 24% of gdp in the first quarter of 2014. i am concerned about the impact on the economy and the unintended consequences of these accommodations. it seems to me there is a disconnect between what the fed intended to accomplish and the results. even the fed zone economist estimate qe2 as only about .3% to real gdp growth in 2010, and another expert has indicated it contributes to bubblelike markets. how do you respond to the concerns that quantitative easing is creating serious risks in our financial markets? >> a number of different studies have been done attempting to assess what contributions have been, and this is something we can't know with certainty, but my personal assessment would be based on all that work that they have made a meaningful contribution to improving outlook. the purpose was to push down longer interest rates. we have seen interest rates fall substantially. lower interest rates, lower mortgage rates have been instrumental. it's no
on stocks across the world. >> the fed later on has a couple of issues to deal with. the federal reserve has a domestic mandate which is about employment or unemployment i should say and growth. they could possibly take into consideration what is happening in turkey or what might happen in south africa -- i suppose it would be delusional. we have a new cast of characters on the federal reserve committee. >> corporate news, we have a little bit of fashion not doing so great. >> watch for that stock potentially to fall on the open. a profit warning coming from mulberry. we know their leather bag so well. we know how difficult it was on the u.k. high street in the run-up to christmas. they say that is going to severely impact their profitability. they are going to see significant miss in terms of profits. retail sales were 3% below where they stood about pre-months in the run-up to christmas up until january 25. mulberry having a tough time in the u.k. and also in korea. >> we are just getting some breaking news out of spain. 600 openthe stoxx higher gaining 0.5%. in terms of spain. we have ret

not help the stock market. meanwhile, the fed did as expected and continued cutting back on its bond buying. but of course stocking sold off sharply anyway. some believe the fed writes the market's daily memo. steve liesman and i will look closely at this whole story. also the elephant in the middle of the living room. president obama talked about high tech hubs and broadband for kids and evils of inequality, but it sounded like a diversion from the continuing failure of obamacare which he did not mainly address. tonight, we have the kudlow economic rebuttal to the state of the union. and speaking of income inequality, millionaires are good. they invest to create businesses and jobs. inequality can be a good thing and it can be a sign of a truly free economy. and there is yet more to the inequality story. did women's will i be cause rising income equality? and as bird of a feather flock together, they marry successful me men. isn't that a good thing? the "kudlow report" begins right now. >>> good evening. i'm larry kudlow. is this the kudlow report. we're here here at 7:00 eastern and 4:00
how will you assess the regs put out, the higher capital standards by the fed and occ, and fdic? how will you assess as they go into effect if you need higher capital requirements, not just, i mean certainly the surcharges but how will you assess the effectiveness of those? >> there are, you know, studies of an attempt to estimate what the too big to fail subsidy is in the market. while there are a lot of question marks around those studies we can look to see what's happening there. >> you believe there is a subsidy as -- >> will the senator wrap it up? >> that is my next question. do you believe there is subsidy as bloomberg pointed out, some others, 10 of billions of dollars a year for the largest banks? >> i think there are different methodology that is are used in different studies and it's hard to be definitive, but yes most, i would say most sudden did is point to on some sub is i did i that -- subsidy that may reflect too big to fail although other factors may account for part of the reason that larger firms tend to face lower borrowing costs. >> thank you. i'm sorry, mr.

. the fed recently announced it will begin slowing its bond purchasing program this month known as quantitative easing. the senate is scheduled to hold a confirmation vote on monday on chairman bernanke's successor. he's joined by economists. they spoke for about an hour and a half. >> these are the annual meetings of our association, the association of economists, and it's attended by 11,000 or 12,000 card-carrying economists from around the country and indeed around the world. we gather here -- not here, but in these meetings annually. we debate high theory. we debate policy. we have discussion groups. and this is one of the sessions that we're particularly proud of and is one of the highlights of these meetings. we have the pleasure today of hearing the reflections of ben bernanke. ben earned his ph.d., earned his ph.d. from m.i.t. in 1979. and since then, he's been a distinguished scholar and public servant. i'm not going to give a long introduction, because most of you know him, but i'll just give some personal reflections on his career. his scholarly writers have illuminat

. janet yellen one step away from becoming the next fed chairman. she would be the first woman to lead the central bank. we discuss what it's going to mean for the global economy. india's largest e-commerce retailer is progressing to be the next and yes, it's monday, so my producers will once again try to stump me with tonight's mystery guest. all that and more over the next hour. but first, headlines from carol massar. >> pimm, thank you so much. a holding company for icon is said to be planning a $3.5 billion debt offering, the largest ever for the company. according to a person with knowledge of the transaction, as part of the deal icon enterprise may sell three-year notes which cannot be called in five-year bonds after 2 1/2 years. first-quarter earnings in line with what was forecast. however, quearl revenue with $126.7 million, short of the estimated $127.5 million for the nation's largest chain of drive-in restaurants. and aviation bumpy start to 2014 continues for jetblue as the carrier cancelled 300 flights today. additionally they announced on its website that it
statements just one hour ago and the big headline is the fed is cutting its bond buying program again by an additional $10 billion per month. that takes it down to $65 billion per month. the markets move lower on that news. while the dow is down 185 at its lowest point it was down 220 points. s&p 500 down 17 right now at its low point was down 22. we are up off the floor because the nasdaq down 44, was down 51 points. at its worst point just a few minutes after the fed announcement. now while likely expected, he fed announcement shows he federal reserve tends to stick to its winding down plan of the bond buying program that was initially put in place a couple of years ago to put a floor in what it really was a very tentative situation. now we've got that problem with emerging market currencies wavering and a drop in u.s. equity markets but yes, many stocks are getting clipped for all of those reasons and more. beyond this very moment, what does the fed's decision mean for your money and your portfolio? let's ring in the panel and we have a whole bunch of very intelligent people to cov
in a recession risks economic debilitating deflation. thus understandably when the recession hit in 2008, the fed sought to avoid mistakes of the past by lowering interest rates encouraging investment. however, this expansionary monetary policy cannot continue into in perpetuity without causing real and lasting damage to our economy. just as we should not repeat the mistakes of the great depression we need to be careful not to repeat the mistakes that fueled our recent recession. let us not forget that our current economic stagnation began with a bursting of the housing bubble in late 2007, a housing bubble that was fueled by rampant speculation, that was driven in part by historically low interest rates maintained by the federal reserve between 2001 and 2004. yet, once again we see the fed embarking on a policy of sustained historically low interest rates. the fed has now maintained that federal funds rate essentially will be at zero over five years. what may be the future consequences of this policy? what new bubble will arise? at this point i don't think anyone can answer these questions defin
to talk more about this later, but let me ask you your view of the fed. all the easy money the last few years has helped to fuel the rally we've seen. now we know they're going to start pulling back beginning this month. do you think when they meet next week that this sell-off might give them pause in that tapering as we call it? >> well i think the tapering is what's causing these problems or at least is revealing them. so i think if they did stop that would prove to the world that they're completely trapped in a policy that is not working. so they are going to taper, but we've seen this movie a few times. it happened after qe1. it happened after qe2. it happened last summer when they hinted at ending qe and this is happening again. so investors shouldn't be surprised. >> but peter, isn't the point that that indicates not that what the fed is doing doesn't work but that it does. in other words in order to keep markets functioning the way they are at these levels it requires them to continue having sort of an easier stance than what they're trying to do now? >> it's a
policy that the fed must move carefully as it winds down its quantitative easing program, tapering to quickly could cause major financial disruptions in developing nations. [inaudible conversations] >> committee will come to order. without objection the chair is authorized to declare recess of the committee at any time. chair now recognizes himself for five minutes for the purpose of an opening statement and i won't take all those five minutes, but i will simply open to say this is a continuing part of our series of hearings examining the fed at the 100th anniversary of the fed, of the federal reserve. and examining both the history of the fed and the current activities of the fed and what the future of the fed might look like. the title of this hearing is international impacts of the federal reserve's quantitative easing program. qe, as we have lovingly come to know it, has been the subject of a number of hearings or discussions and hearings in this committee since it was begun several years ago. my opinion on qe in terms of its domestic policy has been clear. there are benefits,
glad the treasury market still has a life even though it's under the fed's thumb, so to speak, because to see this drop in rates, to see a 30-year bond potentially closing at the lowest yield since thanksgiving means i think the market is in sync and everybody has seen the movie "bad news bearbears." say that title over and over because that's the way in needs to be and ultimately the way it will be. >> danny hughes, what do you make of this jobs report and what do you do with it then if you're trying to make money in this market? >> investors sure really wanted to be dazzled. everybody was expecting some out of the park number and what we got was a real disappointment. but bad news, as steve said, is good news because that means the fed will continue to do what it's doing, and that -- the stock market likes that even though the market really didn't react at all today. it's been pretty quiet at the beginning of the year after such an incredible rise in disease. what do you do? you have to look long term. these are some flakey numbers. if you're looking at this number to make a decision
concerned that the pair dime is over. i think the fed's money injection kept them alive for a ill who. my question to you, though, is argentina, brazil, india, turkey, places like this, they are embarking on nonmarket, nonfree trade policies, inflation, heavy trade deficits. this, i think is the underlying problem for the emerging markets. where do you come out on this? >> your take is accurate but the selling has been concentrated in five key countries of india, turkey, and south africa that have a common characteristic and that's that they are running very large current account deficits. they have been overly dependent on short-term capital inflows from the united states. as you know, the capital inflows have been funded by the fed's monthly access purchase. >> it covered up the problems in these emerging markets. >> absolutely. >> as i think warren buffett said a couple of years ago, when the tide goes out, you get to see who is swimming naked and i think that's what is going on here because the fed tide, qe, is going to end in a few months. >> that's precisely the case, larry, but i j

because we also have the fed minutes and this is what we have learned to. no blockbuster but it appears most of the members felt the tapering the fed has put into place two years ago to stimulate the economy , they started scaling back 2014 of course, they did at the end of 2013 most voting members feel the tapering process should end by the end of 2014. the economy continues to grow at a moderate pace. also information from atp with a separate jobs report for private sector to begin at two under 30,000. as far as numbers are concerned it did not help but much but another sign that perhaps the economy is finding more stable footing. we have stable footing right here at audi. to this is the laser light to they call it that because the lights are made of lasers. absolutely a huge attention span i want to introduce you president of audi of america isn't tell us about the laser light. >> the laser lights is something extremely cool it is the next phase of lasers. what you have inside that housing is a laser beam. liz: tell me about five i am. >> per minute high be lighting will not distract

claiming qe boosted the recovery. but aren't we really headed for a multiyear fed tightening cycle? that's his gift to janet yellin. those stories and much more coming up on "the kudlow report" beginning right now. >>> good evening, everyone, i'm larry kudlow. this is "the kudlow report." we are live here 7:00 p.m. sxeern eastern and 4:00 p.m. pacific. much of the east coast digging out from a big snowstorm today and man,'s is it cold. single digits here in new york. nbc news's ron mott joins us live from boston, where it may be worse. good evening, ron, and thank you. >> reporter: hey, larry, good evening to you. let me tell you, it is so cold out here it's hard for me to really convey to you how cold it is. the muscles in my face are really straining to be able to get this mouth to talk, but i can tell you it's 9 degrees right now with a wind chill of about 7 below. the temperatures are plunging quickly. and overnight we're expecting the wind chills to hit minus 20. so there's? real concern about the homeless population in boston. there are teams going around the city trying to get the
session is two hawks on the fed are making comments. richard fisher will make comments shortly but mr. plosser has made some comments and is talking about perhaps aggressive moves on interest rates in the near future. i am very surprised this market has been able to hold on to its advances. >> remember yesterday, there were comments as well from a more moderate feb member of the fomc. future rate increases may have to be aggressive. now, those are mr. prosser's words. he also said the tepid december jobs data was just one month's data so they are viewing it, he's yug it as-- viewing it as statistical fluke. the main argument of the hawks is we've gotten as much as we can from qe. nothing different, simply reiterating the position. i just want to note, we had a nice move to the upside right at the open, then sold off, they took some profits and the market didn't drop much. that's one of the things holding the market up here. the overall market. with jpmorgan and wells fargo, we got earnings report exactly in line with expectations. it was remarkable because these are very hard to get r
auctions next week bearing in mind they're the first ones being conducted on that scale after the fed announced tapering? you know will begin this month. what do you think? >> i think the three-year will go pretty well. i think the longer maturities i would be concerned about so i want to see what the demand is. i know the old argument as ratsz move higher you bring in a new crowd of investors. i think the duration risk as we get into a real taper, maybe closer to quarter year, midyear, i think it will take a little out of the long-term demand of the auctions. >> erin you get number like the auto sales hit, that's a pretty big step back. do you read further into that to try to change any tactical positioning as well? >> no. again, i do poo-poo that a little bit because of the weather in december. and, again just looking more at the trends. so auto sales are not one of our bigger concerns. >> what about that sector generally? it's been one of the strongest -- one of the bright spots for the u.s. economy here. people have been able to get loans, financing is there all
, what it says about the industry, and ben bernanke on how the fed is changing. treasury yields trading at their highest level since 2011. we will be taking you there live in about 30 minutes. speaking of that, phil mattingly with me from d.c.. what can bernanke say about the fed as he is on his way out to? >> we are about a half hour away from ben bernanke taking the stage. it is a few weeks after policy makers may then move to trim the bond buying program in less -- and less than one month away from his last months in office. this is being billed as his last major speech, likely a review of the turbulent time he has resided over. the fed's decision to start its taper came amid a series of economic reports. those positive economic reports have continued into the new year. it will be very interesting to see what, if anything, he says about his successor. the senate is to confirm janet yellen as the next federal chair. and bernanke has plenty of wisdom to impart. we will see if he shares any of it today. >> phil mattingly joining us there from d.c.. our white house respondent. ben bernan
to go anywhere this year, but we know the days are numbers, maybe 2015 or 2016, the fed will embark on a campaign of rating interest rates and that's when it gets tougher to pay down those balances. >> a lot of folks are thinking what would the fed decide they needed to start raising interest rates? is it because of inflation? >> that's one variable that could come into play. it is not really evident right now. but the other is as the economy continues to recover it is less and less dependent on the stimulant measures. over time, things will normalize if the economy continues on a track towards recovery, but the fed's bias is to take things slowly. >> are you surprised by the fed last month scaling back some of their stimulus and what appears to be some of their plans for early 2014? >> i think the timing was the only real question mark. the idea that they were going to begin tapering was well telegraphed, and it was all a matter of when. the announcement they are going to start tapering this month, that's as small of baby step as you can take, and how much further and how much more
